Coverage: National UK Mainland
Services provided:

ARH Group has been providing project work support to Wm Morrisons Supermarkets since 1999, following a reactive response to an on-site fire at one of the company’s main distribution and production sites in Manchester. After the fire, we were not only able to make the site safe, but were able to complete the required work and subsequent activities to reinstate a food production line and an adjoining storage area. Since 1999, our site work for Morrisons has grown to encompass the design and installation of electrical systems including the maintenance of the existing main electrical supplies, and new transformer installations.

Working from the power source, we are able to provide full electrical installation services to our customers’ circuits and associated data networks and we provide a selection of services, from the input of additional data points for new tills, through to new CAT 5 and CAT 6 data networks. In addition, all our fire alarm and emergency lighting systems are designed, installed, and commissioned by our team of dedicated in-house engineers and technical team.

We work closely with Morrisons to ensure the most efficient project turnaround times and minimal in-store disruption during operations. Ongoing changes in the commercial world have seen our working relationship with the company develop and we now deliver varying projects to reflect their requirements. In recent years this has come to include the supermarket’s rollout programme for self-scan tills across 300 sites, new-build distribution centres and extensions in Thrapston and Rushden. With the introduction of Morrison’s NUTMEG clothing range, we have been involved in the installation and layout changes to lighting designs used to define clothing areas from food produce aisles. We are also proud to be the sole contractor in overseeing the installation and programming of the company’s Fuel Smart gift card systems across 460 stores.

As well as the work we have carried out directly to Morrisons, we continue to work alongside a number of appointed principle contractors to deliver additional projects such as our involvement in the Morrisons ‘M Local’ rollout programme. These new convenience stores incorporate design updates, new layouts, decoration and new technology features such as LED lighting. Another company project we have been involved in is the Essential Refrigeration Programme – a complete overhaul and upgrade of the supermarket’s fridge and freezer systems. During these essential works we are responsible for installing temporary supplies for the interim cooling units and for new equipment and supplying generator equipment where required.  Careful planning is required by the team for loading and scheduling of works to reduce the impact on trading to the minimal possible effect.
